Microsoft gives glimpse of new Xbox console

LOS ANGELES: Microsoft on Sunday gave the world a first glimpse of a powerful next-generation Xbox gaming console that it aims to release late next year.

Xbox head Phil Spencer pulled back the curtain on “Project Scarlett,” the creation of a successor to the Xbox One that will give game makers “the power they need to bring their creative visions to life.”

No pricing plans for the new console were revealed at a gala event ahead of the opening of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) video game industry gathering.

The new Xbox was promised to be released in time for the Christmas holiday shopping season in 2020.

“For us, the console is vital and central to our experience,” Spencer said during a media event that showcased 60 new games for Xbox.

Xbox battles in the console gaming arena with Sony, which is working on a new generation PlayStation.

The commitment to consoles by longtime contenders in the market comes with the rise of video games hosted as subscription services streamed Netflix-style from data centers in the internet cloud.

Xbox said at the E3 event that it is adding the ability for players to stream games in their libraries for play on mobile devices with Game Pass subscriptions.

“We will bring Xbox to the cloud with Project and console streaming,” Spencer said.

“Where you play is entirely your choice, you decide.”

The new service will be previewed later this year, according to Microsoft.

‘Godzilla’ fails to live up to expectations!

Godzilla

LOS ANGELES: The latest installment in the Godzilla film franchise stomped to the top of the North American box office in its opening weekend but failed to live up to monster-sized expectations!
“Godzilla: King of the Monsters” hauled in $47.8 million but analysts called it a disappointment — it was far behind the $93 million raked in by the last Warner Bros. film in the series in 2014, and the new film cost $200 million to make.
In “Monsters,” which has earned tepid reviews, eco-terrorists steal a sonar device developed by scientist Emma (Vera Farmiga) to control the title monster.
Her ex-husband (Kyle Chandler) is recruited to track down the device, even as Godzilla clashes with its storied rivals like winged Mothra and three-headed Ghidorah.
Slipping to the second spot was Disney’s live-action version of its classic animated film “Aladdin,” at $42.8 million.
Directed by Guy Ritchie, the movie stars Will Smith as the fast-talking genie and Canadian actor Mena Massoud as the wily title character who seeks the attention of the heroine Jasmine (Naomi Scott).
In third came Paramount’s Elton John biopic “Rocketman,” with Taron Egerton playing the part (and belting out the tunes) of the legendary pop singer.
The film, which has drawn inevitable comparisons to last year’s hugely popular “Bohemian Rhapsody” about Queen and Freddie Mercury, took in $25.7 million.
Egerton has garnered strong reviews, including the highest of praise from the 72-year-old John himself, who told The Hollywood Reporter that in watching the movie, “I didn’t think it was Taron. I thought it was me.”
Fourth spot went to psychological thriller “Ma” from Universal and Blumhouse Productions, at $18.1 million – a solid opening weekend for a film that cost a mere $5 million to make.
Oscar winner Octavia Spencer stars as a middle-aged woman who lets some teenagers party in her basement before things turn scary and weird.
And in fifth was Lionsgate’s action film “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum,” at $11.1 million. Keanu Reeves again stars as retired hitman Wick, this time being chased by an army of killers after a large contract is put on his head.
Rounding out the weekends top 10 were:
“Avengers: Endgame” ($8 million)
“Pokemon: Detective Pikachu” ($7 million)
“Booksmart” ($3.3 million)
“Brightburn” ($2.5 million)
“The Hustle” ($1.3 million)
